“I used to have a life...then I listened to Hamilton....

I love seeing the newest homemade Halloween costumes!  I've always been a big supporter of the handmade attire that those few adventurous families don each year.  With the internet making it easier and easier to pick up a premade costume, and the catalog of possibilities now out there, it's rare that you see a good costume that's been made with love.  

That's why I love Good Housekeeping's round up of 33 Easy DIY Costumes

Say what you will about Christmas, but for me, there is no better time to decorate than Halloween.  I just adore all the creepy, crawly, icky, sticky, monstrously fabulous decorations that grace the shelves each year.  One of the best things about being a party planner is the repeat clients who book us yearly to decorate and create events for them.  It’s something I look forward to and start planning months in advance. 

Hey everyone, I'm going to admit to you, one and all, that I've had a pretty crazy week.  I planned my last official Bar Mitzvah this weekend.  It was a wonderful affair, for a beloved client but the time and energy exerted during this last week reminded me why I had given them up.  As people often say in a break up - "It's not you...it's me". Well it's true, I put so much of myself into these things that I don't have time for anything else.

Recently, I helped plan the annual summer picnic for one of my long-time, beloved, corporate clients.  I’ve been doing their events for over 12 years. Every year we try to come up with some new and exciting challenges for the kids.  This is the group that did the donut olympics a few years back.  They simply revel in seeing their kids placed in compromising, often messy, situations.

This year was no exception.
